I’m on vacation this week, so I won’t be sending out any new playlists. But many of you have been emailing to ask how you can listen to previous Amplifier playlists, and I’m happy to announce that we finally have them archived and updated here.
So take this opportunity to catch up on any of the more than 50 installments of The Amplifier you may have missed. (No, I can’t believe I’ve already written that many either.) If you’re an overachiever who’s already listened to every single playlist? Honestly, I’m impressed. Reward yourself by revisiting some of your favorites!
When I’m back, I’ll be sending out a very special autumn playlist, and I’d love to include some of your picks.
What makes a fall song, you ask? Sometimes it’s so obvious, it’s in the title: Yo La Tengo’s “Autumn Sweater,” Neil Young’s “Harvest” or pretty much any rendition of “Autumn in New York.” But sometimes it’s more about a certain mood, or a general sonic atmosphere of coziness.
